The Official Inside Story of the Formula One Icon.
This should add a bit of speed to the summer . . . Since 1994 Michael Schumacher has dominated Grand Prix, winning the FIA World championship in five of the last nine seasons. In 2001/2002 he broke almost every motor racing record and is now the most successful Formula One driver of all time.
The official Schumacher book has long been a holy grail in terms of sports publishing. For the very first time we will see the real Michael Schumacher - through extensive first person material, as well as a narrative by Sabine Kehm, a journalist, colleague and friend of Schumacher.
Fantastic new photographs from renowned European photographer, Michel Comte, will give us new insight into the man and his life. For the first time the private man who gives nothing away and the driver who takes no hostages will be relaxing and opening up.
This book will be a real surprise to all fans of Formula One and anyone who's wondered just what goes on behind the superhero's mask. We will learn about Schumacher's past, the secrets of his extraordinary success, his family, his view of other drivers and the state of F1, his opinions on controversial races and drivers, and we will be given an insider's view of Ferrari. At last one of the truly great sporting heroes opens up in an intimate, fantastically photographed book.
